No matter how you plan, no matter how you prepare, even when you’ve prayed with and for your children – you will have bad days.
Sometimes you may even have very bad, no good, terrible days.
What’s a Mama to do when she’s tried absolutely everything – and she’s still dealing with less than cooperative or even defiant children?
Set herself a calm resolve. Calm and Resolve are the key words.
“[A Calm Resolve to Wait for the Salvation of God] To the Chief Musician.To Jeduthun. A Psalm of David. Truly my soul silently waits for God; From Him comes my salvation.” Psalm 62:1
If God, who created the universe, and breathed life into the dust – God, who took down the enemies of David – God, who used a young shepherd boy and 5 little stones to defeat Goliath . . . .
surely He can handle your little ones.
The enemies of David were not defeated in a day, week, or even a month. But, David cried out to the God of the universe – with a heart that believed. He was willing to wait for God’s answer – and for God’s timing. He didn’t stop petitioning God for his needs, but along with those cries – was a faith and a willingness to wait on the Lord.
Are you struggling daily to check off a “homeschool list” for your children? I’m not suggesting that you throw in the towel – or stop trying to school your kids until God shows up. I’m simply saying that if you petition Him as David did, with a willing heart – He will indeed show up.
Are you waiting on God with your homeschool and your home life?
Our God is faithful – I’m so grateful today that He is!
